The Time is Now to support our Seniors. Anne wants Campbell to continue to be an Age-Friendly city. She is committed to listen to the needs of the aging population. She wants to work collaboratively with older people across sectors to create accessible physical environments, inclusive social environments, and an enabling service infrastructure.
Anne would like to maintain sidewalks to improve safety, and ensure proper sidewalk width to accommodate wheelchairs or other mobility devices. She would like to increase benches and shade along walking routes and provide good street lighting. She believes in enforcing traffic laws that affect pedestrian safety, such as drivers failing to yield to people walking in marked or unmarked crosswalks. She would like to incorporate design guidelines to accommodate older pedestrians.
As a commissioner, Anne recommended Social Services Live Oak Adult Day Services, Senior Adults Legal Assistance, and The Health Trust – Meals on Wheels Program receive grant money from the City Council. During the shelter in place, Anne delivered hot meals to seniors in Campbell and the surounding neighborhoods.
